Pretty Flamingo

Here is Pretty Flamingo by Manfred Mann from when the rabbit was - well - a small rabbit. And an exquisite song it is too. The cartoon accompanying it is - well - pretty bizarre. Random factoid: the guy who wrote Pretty Flamingo - Mark Barkan - also wrote the Banana Splits Song - as in 'one banana, two bananas'... One thing that keeps bugging me about the cartoon is that flamingos are pink and not yellow. As can be seen below. And yet again the 'flamingo' in the cartoon appears to be a hippo and not a bird at all, even a small yellow one. All very confusing.

Drugs and other mind bending substances can be such a bitch.

Great investigative work on this Mark Barken character... So he's the one Marley ripped off! Buffalo Soldier my ass!

That was a seriously bizarre cartoon. Also, a seriously weird clip about the actual birds... eerie.
Love the song though.
Rock on,
